If you haven’t seen Kylie Jenner and Stormi Webster do the viral candy challenge, you’re missing out. In the video, the adorable 2-year-old stuns everyone after showing self-restraint in the popular social experiment involving a bowl of M&Ms.

After sharing the post, many of Jenner’s followers were quick to comment on how smart and well-spoken Stormi is at a young age. While some are applauding the makeup mogul for raising such a bright child, others think that the toddler’s intelligence is a result of her having a good nanny.

Stormi’s patience was put to the test

Stormi Webster has a lot more will power than most adults.

The precious 2-year-old daughter of Jenner and Travis Scott proved that her listening skills are top-notch after doing the viral TikTok candy challenge and coming out victorious.

The video — which was shared on the makeup mogul’s Instagram — begins with Jenner placing a bowl of M&Ms in front of Stormi and telling the toddler that she can have three pieces when she returns from the bathroom.

“I’m gonna put the chocolates right here, OK? You can only have three of them. I’m gonna give you three of them,” Jenner says in the video as Stormi lunges toward the bowl. “But wait! You have to wait until mommy comes back. I have to go to the bathroom. So let me go to the bathroom and then you can have it, OK?”

As she starts to walk off, Jenner makes the toddler promise one last time that she’ll wait for her. Stormi agrees and the billionaire leaves the room.

After a few moments, Stormi looks at the bowl of candy and says, “Oooh! M&Ms…” while leaning in close. But she quickly remembers the promise she made her mom and sits back on the couch, chanting, “Patience, patience.”

When Jenner returns, Stormi jumps up with excitement and digs into the bowl of candy.

Fans are still reacting to the challenge

After sharing the video, Jenner’s friends, family, and fans quickly took to the comments to applaude the little girl’s self-control.

“Patience is a virtue!! such a good girl,” one fan commented.

“Stormi wins this challenge,” someone else declared.

While many people are still gushing over how well Stormi did in the challenge, others have been shouting out Jenner for teaching the toddler self-restraint and how to use terms like “patience” in the correct context.

“Kylie Jenner must be a great parent because not many 2-year-olds would know to use a big word like patience in such context lmao,” one person tweeted.

“Kylie Jenner defied all doubts and stereotypes of her ability to mother a child at 20. She’s a great mom to Stormi who is just the cutest,” another person wrote.

While many people agree that Jenner is doing an amazing job raising Stormi, others don’t believe that she should get the credit for the toddler’s intelligence.

Some fans have argued that Stormi’s nanny or teachers deserve the appreciation since many celebrity kids learn educational and life lessons from the hired help.

“Money buys tuition from an early age. Some rich people’s kids can speak a whole foreign language by 6,” one person tweeted.

It didn’t take long for a discussion surrounding Jenner’s parenting to ensue, with Kylie stans noting that she’s always talked to Stormi like an adult, which is why the little girl is so advanced for her age.

“Listen to the way she talks to her, Kylie doesn’t do baby talk with her so she’ll learn,” one user penned.

No matter who taught Stormi how to be patient and speak eloquently, she’s still a very intelligent little girl at the end of the day.
